Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring refers to nonsurgical treatments that can improve the shape of your body. Getting the perfect body with diet and exercise alone can be difficult for most people.

To help you achieve your aesthetic goals, you may need a little help from Ruth at The Loft MedSpa. With Sculptra, she can recontour your body in some small areas to match all of your efforts.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is a dermal filler that adds volume under your skin. However, instead of hyaluronic acid, which is the active ingredient in traditional dermal fillers, the active ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is a compound that stimulates your body to produce collagen.

Collagen is a supportive protein found in your skin that provides strength and elasticity. As you get older, collagen production decreases, leading to skin laxity, lines, and wrinkles.

The loss of collagen isn’t only responsible for the lines on your face, but also your crepey neck, arms, and legs. The PLLA in the Sculptra injection may help stimulate collagen production to improve the strength and look of your skin.

What areas can benefit from Sculptra?

Sculptra is FDA-approved for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles. However, Sculptra has many off-label uses as well and may be used to enhance buttocks or biceps, smooth skin laxity around the knee, and correct cellulite.

Ruth can review the uses of Sculptra when you come in for a consultation and help you decide if it’s the right treatment for you.

What can I expect during Sculptra injections?

After she carefully creates a treatment plan to match your aesthetic goals, Ruth conducts your Sculptra injections right in the office.

The length of your session may depend on the number of injections you’re receiving. To ease any discomfort before she begins, Ruth may apply a topical anesthetic.

You may notice some redness at the site of the injection following your treatment, but these side effects should disappear within a day.

To get the best results from your Sculptra treatments, Ruth may recommend a series of injections over a three-month period. Once you’ve completed your series, the results may last up to two years.
